Developing transversal competences

Description

Description

Transversal competences are mentioned in the 2012 Joint Report of the Council and the Commission on the implementation of the Strategic Framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020) — ‘Education and Training in a smart, sustainable and inclusive Europe’. One of the key priority areas in European cooperation on Education and Training is 2012-2014 is the enhancing of creativity and innovation, including entrepreneurship, at all levels of education and training. The priority is to work together to promote the acquisition of the key competences identified in the 2006 Recommendation on key competences for lifelong learning, including digital competences and how ICT and entrepreneurship can enhance innovation in education and training, promoting creative learning environments and heightening cultural awareness, expression and media literacy.

There is an Open Method of Coordination (OMC) thematic working group (TWG) for the ET2020 Strategy in place which tackles the topics of transversal Skills, including ICT and Entrepreneurial Skills and Languages once the new benchmark is agreed.
ET2020 Thematic Working Groups have just undergone a revision after the Council’s request in February 2013. Their new mandate focuses on implementing the ET2020 agenda and build tighter links with the European Semester, and their number has been reduced to match key policy challenges. Their results should be regularly presented to the Education Committee of the Council and national representatives should turn over within the TWGs representation in order to gain more ownership on what happens there.

In ADAM 2345 projects can be found when entering the search term transversal skills.
